Getting to Cornwall
The South West of Cornwall is readily accessible by car, air or train.
From the Midlands and Bristol take the M5 to Exeter. Exit at junction 31 and follow signs to Launceston, Redruth and Penzance via the A30. At Carland Cross roundabout (you’ll see the wind turbines on your right), take the third exit onto the A30 and continue on this road, taking the second exit at Chiverton Cross roundabout.
If you are collecting keys from our Hayle Office, at Loggans Moor Roundabout (McDonalds), take the second exit onto Marsh Lane, passing the Retail Park on your right. At the mini roundabout take the first exit and after 40 yards turn right into the industrial park. Take the next immediate left, drive to the end of the road and the Aspects office will be opposite. If keys can be collected from our other offices via prior arrangement then please contact our holiday team who will willingly provide you with more detailed directions.
Many of our properties are easily accessible by train. For properties in St Ives, the single track branch line links to Lelant, Carbis Bay and St Ives, which links with St Erth, Penzance and mainline routes to London Paddington.
